Not Charging, No light on magsafe
Hello everyone, I recently got my hands on a 2011 Macbook Pro 15.
The laptop looks like it may have been dropped and the corner where the magsafe adapter goes. I am not getting a light from it when plugged in.
Laptop turns on and works when I charge the battery in a different machine. Also the magsafe cord works on my other a1286 perfectly.
Here are the troubleshooting steps I have done.
1. Pulled battery and tried to power from just the magsafe adapter to rule out a bad battery.
2. Reset SMC
3. Pulled logic board out of case to see if there was a short.
All in all I have done a few things to it and still get no light from the magsafe cord. Although when the board was out I did get a green light for a second then it turned off. Like I said computer will run off of battery power.
Any idea what it may be? Any advice would be helpful.
Is this a good question?
